Graffiti from the 1800s on a megalithic temple, Gozo, March 2019

Graffito, and the more commonly used plural graffiti, comes from the Italian word for scratch. It makes its appearances throughout history, from prehistoric carvings to modern street art. Much of it is artistic and welcome, some not so welcome.


Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtagtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.
